At the PTSA Q&A event last night I spoke with the interim CFO, Robert Bousche, and he told me that he wanted folks to send him ideas for ways that the District could cut their budget.
Steve Sundquist told me that the Board generally relies on the staff to recommend changes but that they could put in ideas of their own or ideas that they get from the public.
So let's send Mr. Bousche and Mr. Sundquist some ideas.
I can't find an email address for Mr. Bousche, so until we can get it, let's just send the ideas to Communications and to the superintendent and ask them to forward the idea to Mr. Bousche.
Here are a couple ideas that I will be sending in today:
* Stop the spending on the web site upgrade project. Savings: at least $400,000.
* End the NTN contract with STEM a year early at one school (academy). Savings: $200,000.
